SGV runaround

thanks for the recs earlier CHers! i turned the wrong way onto New Ave, ended up in Monterey Park..no big deal, i thought...China Islamin: door open, open sign in window but Mama was countin money and said "come back 5pm." went Beijing Pie House: open sign in window, door open. I went in and to my right, 2 guys had pulled chairs up so they could stretch out. both sound asleep. other end of restaurant: 2 women, same position, out cold...i shouldve heated up some oil and made something myself..same mini mall: i thought id read good things about Kam Hong but they were closed till 5pm...drove around a bit, saw Mama Lu's Dumplings open...had a tasty scallion pancake(light, flaky crust, not greasy but not much scallion...order of fennel, pork dumplings were good...went on my way to Claremont still a bit hungry but at least the jazz was good! i wont go to SGV between 2pm and 5pm again...funny!
